Western Wind Energy Orders 15 1-MW Wind Turbine Generators

In a turbine supply agreement, Mitsubishi Power Systems will supply Western Wind Energy with an initial 15 one-megawatt (MW) MHIA 1000A wind turbine generators, to be delivered this October for Western Wind Energy’s 15-MW steel park wind project in Arizona.

The agreement further calls for up to an additional 900 MW of wind turbine generators for future projects. A delegation from Western Wind Energy will be traveling to Japan next month to inspect the new 2.4-MW Mitsubishi wind turbine generator that the company hopes to showcase in North America. Mitsubishi Power Systems has produced more than 2,000 wind turbine generators in service throughout the world, which are under warranty and known to be reliable. During the past two years, Western Wind Energy has executed more than $900 million of power sales agreements totaling 159.5 MW from the sale of wind energy electrical generation to three separate utilities. Western Wind Energy was the first to execute a “wind” PPA in the Province of New Brunswick, Canada, the first to execute a “wind” PPA in the State of Arizona, and in California, is expanding from management’s 24-year continuous operating history in the Tehachapi Pass. Western Wind Energy acquires land, capital and technology for the production of electricity from wind energy. It conducts operations through wholly owned subsidiaries in Arizona, California and New Brunswick, Canada. Management of Western Wind Energy is by individuals who have been involved in the operations and ownership of utility scale wind energy operations in California since 1981.
